Derek McInnes has enjoyed an excellent start to his role as manager of Bristol City since departing St Johnstone and taking over at Ashton Gate, while Burnley’s recent form is patchy to say the least.
After a defeat to Birmingham in his first game in charge, McInnes has led his side to two impressive away results. Following on from a victory at Barnsley, the Robins picked up a superb point with a 0-0 draw against West Ham when they visited Upton Park on Tuesday evening.
Eddie Howe’s men have struggled to put a run of wins together and every time they look to have turned a corner, the following fixture sees them take a step backwards.
After a brilliant performance against Blackpool in front of the Sky cameras last Saturday, the Clarets were favourites to push on and pick up another three points at home to managerless Leicester City, but proceeded to lose 3-1.
A home win still eludes Bristol City so far this season, but with some good form finally behind them, it could be worth backing the boys from Bristol to grab all three points at 7/4.
Bwin’s 3Way football betting market has the draw at 9/4, with an away win for Burnley priced at 29/20.
Last season saw Bristol City take four points from their encounters with Saturday’s opponents, which included a 2-0 victory at Ashton Gate.
New customers who fancy a repeat of this scoreline can use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com to back it at a massive 13/1, with potential winnings of £350 on offer if successful.
For customers looking for alternative options, there looks to be a banker in the ‘How many goals will be scored?’ market.
In Burnley’s 14 games thus far there have been a total of 39 goals scored, which on average is 2.79 goals per game.
Similarly, the 15 games involving Bristol City have seen 37 goals scored – on average 2.47 goals per game.
With this in mind, backing over 2,5 goals to be scored in the game at 17/20 appears to be a solid play.
